Here is my card for the inspiration.

I used an off white card base this time to sort of create a bit of a vintage critter card. Normally I would go with a very white one but I thought it may be good to mute things down every now and then. I stamped the images from Party Parade stamp set onto a piece of copic friendly cardstock using SSS Intense Black Ink and did some coloring using my copic markers.

For the ground, I used the diagonal stripes stencil and did some ink blending using Green Apple and Jellybean dye inks. For the clouds I used the Mini Clouds stencil and Tumbled Glass distress ink.


I used some patterned paper and banners coordinating dies to create the banner in the background. I added some star sequins in the background just for some added interest. I adhered all the elements on an A2 sized top folding white card base.

That finished off my card.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!
